I'm going to take it as you would want to build around him when he was in his prime... but now he is overrated based on what he has done in years past compared to what he is doing right now. Sort of like he is living on his lore. Exactly like Drury's lore of clutchness which never happened at all in the PO's last year.
Or you can take as what the players felt in June...Instead of trying to add a caveat to it you can just look at hypocritical that "overated" poll was...

BUT

I'll take the overrated poll and think that's how players will feel about him in the future..So i guess we are even...

you want to think Jeter is overrated be my guest but it doesn't mean it's true...

The Drury-Jeter comparrison isn't good...it's comparing a first ballot hall of famer in one sport to a non-hall of famer in another sport...it also compares guys from two diffrent sports which is hard to do....
